I know this has been discussed before but memory fails me. If I remove the "typical" synthetic grip from a racquet and replace it with a "typical" leather grip, how much weight have I added? Thanks.

a fairway (which typically weighs 1 ounce) will typically add 1/2 an ounce of weight to a racket. for example: if your racket weighs 12 ounces as-is with stock grip, it will weigh 12.5 when fitted with the fairway.... the PK leather grip has a total weight of about 0.7 oz.
hope this helps...
